There has been a Paul Pierce appearance as a starter every season since being selected by the Celtics as the 10th overall pick in the 1998 NBA Draft. Pierce is a six-time All-Star and led Boston to an appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals in 2002, as well as the 2008 NBA championships. It was his first championship series, and was awarded the 2008 NBA Finals MVP. He was also chosen for the All-NBA Third Team three times, and during his rookie year, he was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First team.
Pierce was a member of the US national team for the 2002 FIBA World Championship, for which nine of the games included a Paul Pierce appearance as a starter. He was also part of the US National Basketball team for the 2006 FIBA World Championship, although minor off-season surgery prevented him from playing for the team.
**Paul Pierce Speaker**
A great Paul Pierce speaker topic is the story of how he was cut from the varsity team back in college, but eventually decided to work harder and keep trying to make the team. Eventually, of course, he was more than successful. But his story serves as a good reminded that even the most successful people don’t always obtain their success without hard work and disappointment.
**Paul Pierce Appearance**
After the debut Paul Pierce appearance in the NBA as a standout rookie, his ability to score, rebound, play defense, and a healthy dose of late-game heroics led to his emergence as a top player in the Eastern Conference.
**Paul Pierce Endorsement**
Pierce’s nickname, The Truth, was accorded him by Shaquille O’Neal after a Lakers’ victory over the Celtics in 2001. This was meant to commend Paul Pierce on his spectacular basketball skills. If Paul Pierce earns this kind of endorsement from a personality as famed as Shaq, imagine what a Paul Pierce endorsement could do your company.
